Alicia Silverstone Cancels Her Guest Spot, Scared Off By Britney Spears

Yesterday's news that Britney Spears (photosBritney Spears photos) would be appearing in an episode of the CBS sitcom 'How I Met Your Mother' was reason for excitement among Britney's fans.

However, the same news has given Alicia Silverstone second thoughts about her own guest spot on the show, and the actress has pulled out of her planned stint on the comedy.

Silverstone pulled out of the spot as soon as she heard that Spears would be appearing on the same episode she was set to appear in. Producers have not confirmed her decision, but 'E!' reports the actress has already informed CBS.

Apparently, Alicia believes that the atmosphere would be "too chaotic" with Spears on the set and doesn't want to deal with any Spears-mania.

One actress who is in consideration to play Alicia's role is Scrubs' Sarah Chalke. Her character was to play a sexy dermatologist that lead character Ted falls for named Stella. Britney will be playing Abby, Stella's "sweet, friendly, scattered and a little nerdy" secretary.

Being a fan of the show, Silverstone will probably appear on another episode in the series, but no firm date has been set.
